Bargaining round 2018: Collective agreement in Bavarian metalworking and electrical Industry
The 4th bargaining round in Munich on February 08, 2018, led to a collective agreement in the Bavarian metalworking and electrical industry. Two days earlier, Baden-Württemberg had already finalized a pilot agreement that is usually being followed by the other bargaining regions.
Angelique Renkhoff-Mücke, vbm negotiator, comments: "Overall, the Bavarian collective agreement is an acceptable compromise. We appreciate the newly created collective bargaining options for a considerable extension of working time, in particular the significant increase in the allocation of 40-hour employment contracts. This way, companies have the opportunity to cope with the already existing shortage of skilled workers. In addition, the comparatively long term of 27 months allows our member companies to plan on the long run.
